One of the biggest surprises for the Dallas Cowboys since training camp began has undeniably been wide receiver Devin Smith. The former second-round pick had a long way to go and did absolutely everything that he could to get there.

It seems as if Smith’s efforts were rewarded to the degree he likely hoped. According to NFL Network’s Bobby Belt, Devin Smith has made the Dallas Cowboys 53-man roster.

Dallas had three receivers in Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and Randall Cobb that were assured roster spots from the moment OTAs even began. Tavon Austin quickly ascended to the “he’s definitely making it” portion of the totem pole, but that left at the very least one roster spot open.

Fellow Buckeye Noah Brown has made the Cowboys roster before, but he’s been injured this entire time so the status of his future remains unknown. The fifth (potentially sixth) spot in the receiver room has been a battle between Smith and last year’s draft selection out of Boise State, Cedrick Wilson.

As of the timing of this writing, our entire cuts tracker is right here, it’s unknown exactly what is going to happen with Wilson; however, we know that Smith is officially part of the offense. he had an incredible preseason and made it too difficult for the Cowboys to let him walk.
